I own a juice and smoothie bar and have a lot of customers who look for new and delicious juice and smoothie specials. I bought this book hoping to get some fresh ideas and combinations. While the author does offer some nice combos, ALL of them are complicated, requiring one to make a tea of some obscure sort, then blend in something else. All of this is total pain. It makes all these offerings seem more like medicine than food. Another thing-there are NO YIELDS ANYWHERE! So one juice will make 4 ounces, another will make 8-10. I'd expect some variation based on the age of the fruits and veggies but these recipes are all over the place. It would be useful to have a note attached to each juice recipe with whatever nutritional benefits can be had by drinking it. Such as-cleansing, good for UTIs, full of vitamin C, hearty and filling, packed with anti-oxidants, etc. As published, you have to look up all the different ingredients in the previous chapters to find the nutritional benefits-confusing and a hassle.
